The first week came by and went by fast. We had a lot of admin stuff done like setting up bank accounts, phone line issues and etc. But we also ate A LOT of good food HAHA B) and we also had a lot of fun whee~ Food wise, my fav restaurant is XinBaiLu, 新白鹿(or xbl for short and xlb is xiaolongbao haha dont confuse) amongst those that the student mentors had recommended (WaiPoJia, 外婆家and LvCha, 绿茶 which all three have branches in 西城 银泰城 ). Restaurant food here are so worthy since you can get high quality Chinese food for the price range of only SGD6 – SGD10. WHERE TO FIND IN SINGAPORE B) Most importantly, you also have to KNOW WHAT TO ORDER* :$ I went to this well decorated restaurant called Childhood Villa, 童年小筑 (at a walk-able distance from ZJG) with my group of friends and I were very satisfied with our meal. We were back there again during Buddy Day because our buddy wanted to bring us there and the dishes that they ordered were unique but not as palatable to our taste. Since we were still hungry, the few of us just met up with Stella and Tenzin at WuLin Night Market, 武林夜市 after that to eat some more xD
Talking about Buddy Day, we went to XiHu’s Baoshi Mountain, 西湖宝石山, which is a very scenic place : )
Thereafter we were fortunate enough to be able to cab to dinner place or free. As mentioned we ate at Childhood Villa, 童年小筑 and headed to WuLin Night Market, 武林夜市 right after.
That was my 8th day in Hangzhou.
